TVD Recommends: Untapped Dallas at Gilley’s, 11/1

Attention, Dallas-Fort Worth: Beware of getting too carried away this Halloween. You’re going to want to make it to the better part of the weekend—Dallas’s Untapped Festival.

Melding the best in craft beer and the most interesting acts in music, the multi-city festival is back in D-Town this Saturday, tastier and more eclectic than ever. With more than 300 beers from 80 plus breweries and a lineup including both nationally touring and regional acts, both emerging talent and age-old favorites, the festival offers tricks and treats for every palate.

Now in its third run in Dallas, not counting several Untapped Festivals in Fort Worth and Houston, the event has roots deep enough to bring in a host of big-name acts this year—and, even better, ones that span the musical spectrum. From ironic geek rockers CAKE, to the early 2000s’ hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030, folk and bluegrass duo Shovels & Rope, and 20-piece symphonic group The Polyphonic Spree, the festival’s lineup features a diverse, cross-genre mix of talent from past and present.

…and future. Untapped always has an uncanny knack for handpicking some of the best in emerging artists. Among those we’re most looking forward to this year are Dallas-based hip-hop duo A.Dd+ and Fort Worth native Leon Bridges, a young singer-songwriter whose soulful voice and blues-inspired style feel timeless. Other highlights include Jamestown Revival—whose brand of harmony-driven folk rock is nothing short of brilliant live—and Air Review, one of DFW’s favorite indie bands.

Whether you’re a hardcore music geek, a hardcore craft beer geek, or a newbie looking for solid tunes and a solid buzz this Saturday, Untapped Fest is the place to be. Who cares about Halloween, really, when Untapped promises everything you need for a scary good time.*

*No sexy cat costume necessary for entrance.

Untapped Festival takes place this Saturday, November 1, at Gilley’s Outdoors. For tickets and more information, visit the festival’s website.
